Unexpected day off so I cleaned the house and sorted through my books. I purged a decent number of mass market paperbacks (set aside for donation) and redid two of my bookcases.

Funny, I started a new book yesterday, and the last line of the author’s bio at the beginning reminded me of this thread - ha!

Julie Garwood has a new book coming out in about three weeks. She is one of my favourite fluff read authors. Several of her main characters are autistically coded. I'm currently 70% through the entirety of the connected series...I did not pace this well, but then again I can munch these books in less than a day. (300 - 400 pages per book).

Potato Cat tried to help me by placing himself on top of my book so I had to stop reading (momentarily).

Some candids of my circus from today. Potato Cat would like to remind you, you never do laundry alone.

Rueful Reader: Occasionally you randomly find a book by an author you haven't read and it resonates with you. A dog too smart for her own good, Jane Austen references, a school librarian, Whovian debates, and a really likable, neurodivergent police chief. Thus far To All the Dog's I've Loved Before by Lizzie Shane is a total delight.

Potato Cat has needed a new cat tree for more than a year. He had outgrown his old one and it was slowly falling to pieces. Well, Potato Cat got mail today.

Lessons of Potato, Book Cat: For some of us that voice in our head...they can be a real jerk. (Brand new poetry book Changing with the Tides by Shelby Leigh sits down with that hypercritical inner voice and has an honest conversation with it. Honestly one of the best poetry book of 2022 so far.)

Lessons of Potato, Book Cat: With some authors it is easy to see why they are prize winning. The book is not complicated or drowning in metaphor. It is simple and subtle, akin to the quiet strength of a reed. (Mary Oliver remains one of my absolute favourite poets. Wondering where to start with poetry, Mary Oliver is an excellent stepping off point.)
